Results suggest that the modified HMP system may meet the demands of the flow and pressure under the hypothermic conditions that are suitable for rat transoorter preservation, while retaining the dependability and portability of the LifePort Kidney Transporter. The system consisted of a rat liver container for perfusion that was installed in the sterile drape of the LifePort Kidney Transporter 1. Liver samples were analyzed using hematoxylin and eosin staining Fig. Assessment for the liver kifeport HMP at 0, 3 and 6 h.

HMP, hypothermic machine perfusion.

Liver histology Liver samples were analyzed using hematoxylin and eosin staining Fig. Perfusate samples from the portal inflow and the catheter cannulated in suprahepatic vena cava were respectively collected and measured using a pH-blood gas analyzer i-STAT; Abbott Point of Care, Inc. Bile was collected from the tube placed in the common bile duct at the end of HMP. Protective effects of a carbon monoxide-releasing molecule CORM-3 during hepatic cold preservation.


It has been reported that OC of the normal rat liver during warm reperfusion was 1. Rapid assessment of islet viability with acridine orange and propidium iodide. Biochemical [alanine transaminase Kdineylactate dehydrogenase LDH and endothelin levels] and histological parameters sinusoidal dilatation, endothelial cell detachment and vacuolization were measured to determine cellular damage associated with HMP.

B-side was the shunt side for decreasing the portal inflow and avoiding termination of LifePort due to excessive pressure under Prime mode.

AO and PI positive cells were counted in each field. AO was used to stain viable cells a green, whereas dead cells were detected by red PI staining. Determination of an adequate perfusion pressure for continuous dual vessel hypothermic machine perfusion of the rat liver. HMP may immediately terminate once the perfusion pressure exceeds the upper limit of the LifePort. An electronic scale was installed under the liver container to calculate the portal inflow according to trqnsporter association with weight, density and volume of the perfusate.

Hepatic effluent was collected from the catheter cannulated in the suprahepatic vena cava every 3 h of the 6-h HMP period and the levels of alanine transaminase ALT and lactate dehydrogenase LDH were analyzed. How did this design improve life? To assess changes lifeort morphology, samples were obtained and analyzed via hematoxylin and eosin staining of a peripheral biopsy following the completion of flush in situ pre-HMP sample and a peripheral biopsy at the end of HMP post-HMP sample.


Refining upon the benefits of machine perfusion.


Open in a separate window. Combined with the results of ATP test AO and PI staining in the liver. Furthermore, vacuolization has been demonstrated as a sign of cell injury associated with HMP 10 China Find articles by Qifa Ye.

Moreover, the graft viability can be assessed by the perfusate tests and perfusion indexes 9. One-year results of a prospective, randomized trial comparing two machine perfusion devices used for kidney preservation.

China Find articles by Yanfeng Wang. Articles from Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine are provided here courtesy of Spandidos Publications. Abstract The protective mechanisms for liver preservation associated with hypothermic machine perfusion HMP remain unclear.

The Lifeport Kidney Transporter

An application on prefixed conditions. The isolated perfused rat liver: Subsequently, the portal inflow per min was calculated according to the association with the volume, weight and density of perfusate. To overcome the shortage transportet brain-dead donors for liver transplantation, extended criteria donors ECDs have been used 1. The images were analyzed using the point-counting method within grids that contained 80 points combined with ImageJ 1.
